Short biography

Before moving at MUN (Math), I was working as an assistant professor in mathematics at Trent University (Trent), Peterborough, ON in 2014-15 academic year. I also worked as a sessional instructor and research associate at the University of Windsor (UWind), Windsor, Canada from September 2012 to August 2014. Before moving to Canada I was a full time faculty in mathematics of Shahjalal University of Science & Technology (SUST), Sylhet, Bangladesh from August 1998 to August 2013. I also worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL), Belgium from April 2009 to June 2010. Following then I worked as a researcher in the Unviersity of Rostock (Uni-Rostock), Germany from July to December 2010. I obtained PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Keio University (KEIO), Japan. I completed BSc(Hons.) in Mathematics and MSc (Thesis) in Applied Mathematics from University of Dhaka (DU), Bangladesh.

Areas of Research

Scientific Computing, Scalable Methods for Healthcare Systems, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Mesh Free Methods (e.g. Vortex Method), Grid Method (e.g. FDM, FVM, FEM), Fast Multipole Method (FMM), Parallel Mesh Generation and Adaptation, Fluid Flow Simulations with Complex Geometries (e.g., Landing Gear, 3D wing), Fluid-Structure Interaction, Scour Reduction at the bed of the Brdge Pier (Sharp-edged and cylindrical), Heat Transfer (eg. Borehole Heat Exchanger), Ocean Modeling, Submarine Landslides (Geotechnical Engineering).

Research Overview
Scour Reduction at the bed of the Bridge Pier (On-going Research)

Three-dimensional numerical simulations using RANS k-ω SST model have been carried out to evaluate the shallow flow past a wall-mounted bluff body. A sharp-edged bluff body is used with and without a front mounted rectangular splitter plate. An approaching flow with fully developed boundary layer is employed to model the effect of shallow flow. The splitter plate facilitates the breakdown of the horseshoe vortex which consequently has a strong influence on the wake flow. The wake flow characteristic are examined and compared at different downstream locations to evaluate the effect of the splitter plate. The simulation results have been compared with and without the splitter plate, and the potential impact on bridge pier scour is explored.

Fast Vortex Methods (PhD Research)

In PhD research, the fully mesh less vortex method (VM) has been used to simulate high Reynolds number turbulent flows. Thesis title is Development of a Fast Vortex Method for Fluid Flow Simulation using Special-Purpose Computers. The VM calculation has been accelerated by a factor of 1000 without loss of numerical accuracy with the simultaneous use of Fast Multipole Method (FMM) and Special-purpose computer; MDGRAPE-3. MDGRAPE-3 has been exclusively designed for molecular dynamics simulations. I have profound knowledge in numerical analysis scientific computing, which I have studied and taught for more than 16 years.

Parallel Mesh Generation

I developed an algorithm for parallel mesh generation and adaptation for complex geometries (e.g. Landing gear and 3D wing). The main goal was to generate huge meshes (>50 M nodes) and parallel adaptation to make a good quality of elements. The adaptation of boundary layer mesh (e.g. 3D wing with 1st bending mode) has been performed. The developed algorithm has been applied to adaptive Boundary Layer mesh, Ocean Modelling and Fluid Structure Interaction problems.
